Wearing a nice primer would make the shadows stand out more and does stays longer as well as it gives the shadows a sleek finish. Yet definitely lots of shades to wear during the day and night. The creatively is endless by mixing and matching the shadows.

It contains six metallized shades and six matte shades all from nudes to dark and sultry hues to bold and bright reds and pinks.

You can never go wrong with any of the shades by wearing metalized shades during the night while the matte shades are just perfect for daily looks. You can definitely mix and match the shades by creating your very own and different shades or even perfect ombre lips. New shades includes like spark, Banger, Shallow, Big Bang and Backtalk.

The packaging is quite sleek and beautiful, it carries a retractable lip brush with super sleek look.

The palette carries a flip able cover where you can use it as your makeup tray without making any mess and flip the attached cover on top of the lipsticks to keep the shades protected from drying.  Last but not least the Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner (C$23.00 each) are super fine glitter eyeliners with clear base that dries down to stay on as long as you want. You can use it as a eyeliner or apply it all over the eyelid for most dramatically look. Urban Decay just introduced six new shades to the collection. Some do look like that they are the same with a hint of difference in shade but you see the difference after application. These glitters have been one of my favorite formulas from a very long time, I first time purchased these in light green shade from London Airport for my wedding day, and I remember how my makeup artist was so impressed with the look and performance of this eyeliner back 12 years ago.
The formula stays input without any fallout which I love it. The formula is gel but not opaque, it’s buildable – you can layer them to get that full glammed look and it dries up pretty quick. I find it looks dramatically amazing over color liners according to their shades. Getting a good shot of these liners were pretty hard but I think I managed to get a good and true shades of the liners.
